HC Deb 04 December 1989 vol 163 c15W
Mrs. Dunwoody

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will introduce legislation to make practical child care courses part of the school curriculum.

Mr. Alan Howarth

Guidance on the place and content of health education in the curriculum as a whole is to be issued to all schools in England in 1990 by the National Curriculum Council. This is likely to include guidance on education about child care.
